Public Benefit Rating System (PBRS)

As stated in King County Code, Chapter 20.36.190(F), a landowner may be required to submit a monitoring report regarding their land’s participation in PBRS. This document and the information provided below will be used to meet this requirement and support staff review of a property’s participation in the program. A participant’s involvement will make monitoring efforts more efficient and reduce program costs.
